Shadow Lyrics

by Britney Spears

Your body's warm but you are not
You give a little not a lot
It could be love until we kiss
You're all I want but not like this
I'm watching you disappear but you
You were never here

It's only your shadow, never yourself
It's only your shadow, nobody else
It's only your shadow filling the room
Arriving too late and leaving too soon
Leaving too soon

Your body gives but then pulls back
The sun is bright, the sky is black
Can only be another sign?
I cannot keep what isn't mine
You left your lingers on but you
You were almost gone

It's only your shadow, never yourself
It's only your shadow, nobody else
It's only your shadow filling the room
Arriving too late and leaving too soon
And leaving too soon

How can I tell if you mean what you say?
You say it so loud that you sound far away
Maybe I have just a glimpse of your soul
Or was that your shadow I saw on the wall?
I'm watching you disappear but you
You were never here

It's only your shadow, never yourself
It's only your shadow, nobody else
It's only your shadow filling the room
Arriving too late no no no
It's only your shadow
It's only your shadow, nobody else
It's only your shadow
Arriving too late and leaving too soon
It's only your shadow
